So Nikon have a great system with the Z mount and particularly the 24-70 F4. I currently have a D7000 and am thinking of upgrading. I have the non OS Sigma 150mm macro, I can find that it "doesn't work" on the FTZ adapter by searching the internet but what does that actually mean? It has an aperture tab like my AF-S and AF-D lenses. Can I manual focus and still have aperture control? If so good I mostly MF in macro anyway so no great loss. If doesn't work means I can't control the lens at all...

Helping my dad upgrade from his Canon 70D + EF 100mm f/2.8L Macro IS USM. He wants better IQ. His job has a very specific use where he has to hold the camera on one hand and a mirror on the other roughly 50-60cm away. Tripod isn't possible due to the dynamic nature of the positions. As for duration, he picks up the camera, shoots for roughly 15 seconds, and puts it back down. So in bursts. He also insists he doesn't want to change his workflow. Given the situation, I came up with A7RIII +...

I have a Nikon D800 and having no luck with focus when using a 2x teleconverter. I've tried both Sigma and Tamron 2x teleconverters on the following lenses. Sigma 70-200 2.8 (non OS version), Tamron 70-200 2.8 VC version, Sigma 120-300 2.8 (non OS version), Sigma 150mm 2.8 macro (non OS version). It will never lock focus, it just pumps back and forth forever hunting. They all work fine without the 2x. My older D300 worked fine with all of these combinations. Any suggestions?
